Oh Dear!!

Style Perfumes, Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: The Garmin NuLink 1695 is so infuriating. The maps maps look good for US city blocks but here in Europe where our roads have bends in them they just look a mess. Place names get some really odd pronounciation and 4 digit road numbers get read out in full - every time!! - ie A5117 is the "A five thousand, one hundred and seventeen!" The options to configuration the unit are very limited so there is nothing that can be done to alter these issues.

Garmin 1695 Nuvi

EAW, Amazon
3 November 2012
  • Summary: The main purpose of a sat nav is to get from A to B. This unit often goes via C I.e. it has even taken us off a major road into a village and then back on a loop to the major road. It is not as good as our very old Mio. Warning of a turning is often poor I..e. turn right in half a mile followed by turn right onto X road a few hundred yards later but long before the junction required and before other possible right turns - so the only way to be sure is to watch the unit -...

If Calsberg Made Sat Nav's this wouldn't be it

True Type Font, Amazon
19 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought my unit in December 2011 Shortly after that it began playing up Input is slow you hit a letter and wait, when you think it hasn't recognised your key press you hit it again and then it decides to play and gives you multiple keystrokes. Very handy when you are trying to type an address or postcode I reported the issue and I should have taken their advice an returned it.

Disappointing device and no cashback

Bobboj, Amazon
13 February 2012
  • Summary: As an owner of a previous Garmin SatNav, a Nuvi 860, I have to say that I am bitterly disappointed with this model as it does not allow entry of custom area and road avoidance data. The 860, which is a few years older, had this facility, which I used many times to avoid stupid routes, such as pot holed country lanes. The 1695 has many things going for it but, to me, this is a fatal flaw.

PhotoReal Junction View

BeRo, Amazon
8 January 2012
  • Summary: It may be that the PhotoReal Junction View only works in London (since every single picture showing this feature shows roads in London area), with driving along many trunk roads in South Wales and the Midlands, NOT ONCE did a photo real junction display, including some hair-raising junctions that PhotoReal Junction View would be ideal for.

1695 vs TomTom XL - a big FAIL for the Garmin, I'm afraid...

Bojan Timotijevic, Amazon
12 August 2011
  • Summary: My original sat nav, the TomTom XL IQ Routes, was an unwanted birthday present, hence the moment of awkwardness upon receipt of a present I didn't really want... but... given my really quite appalling sense of direction, I became very grateful very quickly, as my driving experience was completely transformed.

Navi mit begrenzter Funktion

Alois Koller, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: Habe mir letztes Jahr dieses Navi gekauft, da ich über Bluetooth mein Handy koppeln kann, das funktioniert soweit. Miserabel ist die Ansage, schlecht die Menuführung, Antworten kommen von Garmin bei Fragen so gut wie nicht. Zu allem Überfluss sagt mir das Gerät, das mein Abonnement in 3 Tagen abgelaufen ist, eine Aktualisierung scheiterte von Anfang an, nach mehreren Versuchen das Gerät zu aktualisieren und permanenten Fehlerprotokollen kam die Meldung dass ich über...

Das geld nicht wert...

Ralli, Amazon
27 December 2010
  • Summary: Leider hält das Gerät nicht was es verspricht. Da Garmin in neuen Test relativ gut abgeschnitten hatte entschied ich mich für dieses Gerät. Die neue Gerätegeneration hat aber wohl nicht mehr die gleiche Qualität!? Immer wieder Abstürze der Software während der Zieleingabe. Diese Schwäche ließ sich auch nicht durch ein Softwareupdate beheben. Ansonsten könnte das Gerät durchaus punkten mit seinem großen Screen und der guten Kartenanzeige.

Gut gemeint aber wegen unzureichenden GPS SIgnale nur unzureichend einsetzbar

JOERG-RAINER SASS, Amazon
31 October 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe mir das Nülink 1695 als Nachfolger meines TomTom 940 Go Live gekauft, weil ich ein Navi mit Live-Funktion und einem 5 Zoll Monitor wollte. Super vorbildliche Live-Verkehrsansage, welche besser ist als die Daten des TMC bzw. TMC Pro. Gute Kartendarstellung, mittelmäßige Sprachausgabe, aber tolle Navigation. Gegegüber dem Vorgängermodell, dem 4,3 Zoll Garmin Nüvi 1690 wurde von Garmin wohl positiv an der GPS Antenne gerarbeitet. Kaum noch GPS Ausfälle vorhanden.
